Hi Jesse/Grant,

May be my response to Grant got lost .. anyway, here it is again.

The original mod, we took out the static from pci_root_ops() so that we can use
it in io_init.c. We thought that would be the cleanest.

We do not want to change pci_raw_ops(). It is doing exactly what we need, now
that sn platform has the support for SAL pci reads and writes support.

Probably not clear to all:

+/*
+ * sn_pci_fixup_bus() - This routine sets up a bus's resources
+ * consistent with the Linux PCI abstraction layer.
+ */
+static void sn_pci_fixup_bus(int segment, int busnum)
+{
+ int status = 0;
+ int nasid, cnode;
+ struct pci_bus *bus;
+ struct pci_controller *controller;
+ struct pcibus_bussoft *prom_bussoft_ptr;
+ struct hubdev_info *hubdev_info;
+ void *provider_soft;
+
+ status =
+ sal_get_pcibus_info((u64) segment, (u64) busnum,
+ (u64) ia64_tpa(&prom_bussoft_ptr));
+ if (status > 0) {
+ return; /* bus # does not exist */
+ }
+
+ prom_bussoft_ptr = __va(prom_bussoft_ptr);
+ controller = sn_alloc_pci_sysdata();
+ if (!controller) {
+ BUG();
+ }
+
+ bus = pci_scan_bus(busnum, &sn_pci_root_ops, controller);
+ if (bus == NULL) {
+ return; /* error, or bus already scanned */
+ }
The sal_get_pcibus_info() will fail if we do not find that bus number. If it
fails, we do not call pci_scan_bus()


Thanks.
